Beautiful companion piece to the night before. I swaer, I'm totally enamored with this stuff. Bird Song is dreadfully cut off, but the back few songs sound like an American Beauty redux of some kind, just lovely to listen to with the '71 sound.

While Shannon's on the run...
As already reported the sound is muddy in spots which is too bad because this is pretty interesting stuff.
They are not really trying to stretch out here --just to get Keith into the flow.
Also there is NO Pig here as far as I can tell so that has to wait for the upcoming shows.
Garcia seems to find Cumberland a tad fast --but Jerry that is the best way to dance to it !!!
Ripple to Bird Song is mellow enough
that acoustic 1970
comes to mind.
I like hearing Phil's backing vocals in Uncle John's Band....

Re: New Tunes : )
Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw, Mexicali Blues, and One More Saturday Night have yet to be performed live as of this little studio sitting, or better known as the Keith Godchaux rehersals (9/29/71 - 10/1/71). They are played live for the first time 18 days later at Keith's first show.
5 stars just for the historical value!!! It's quite endearing to listen to the band playing songs in their infancy, especially such staples. Jack Straw alone goes on to be one of the Dead's primer staples, not to mention the others.
The decrepid sound and many cut-offs would typically drop the star rating massively, however, the historical significance of this recording leaves me no option but 4 stars...
That's my final answer.

This little sit-down is really cool for its historic value. Keith had just joined the band and there were several new songs that needed to be worked out. It's cool to hear the little zygote versions of some songs that would become full grown monsters later on. I give this show one white star only because of some gaps in songs due to the recording (the first chunk of Deal is chopped off). Four gold stars because it's the rubber duckin Grateful Dead. Exclamation Point.
